Beyonce and Jay-Z are to become west London’s newest celebrity couple after it was revealed that they had bought a house in the capital city.

The American stars are reportedly tired of wasting money in various London hotels upon visits and have snatched up a five-bedroom townhouse near Beyoncé’s best pal Gwyneth Paltrow.

A source told The Sun:

Both Jay-Z and Beyoncé are going to be spending a lot of time in London over the next few months, Jay is over here for his ‘Watch The Throne’ Tour and Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Beyoncé will be launching her perfume in Europe over the summer. They wanted to have somewhere more homely now they are parents.

They will feel right at home with millionaires Simon Cowell and Richard Branson as nearby residents (and no doubt a couple of oil rich Arabs!).

This follows after a rumour in January that Jayonce were buying a mansion in leafy Surrey.

Well we’re glad they’ve chosen London and even happier that it’s a five-bedroom house. That means there’s plenty of room for us.
